Flower - Walker Map Collection  

In 1941, the museum obtained a collection of over 800 maps from Nathaniel Flower Walker the son of Nathaniel Flower Walker and Great-Grandson of Zephon Flower - three generations of surveyors. Through this collection we view the earliest settlement of northeastern Pennsylvania and the growth and development of Bradford County, Athens, Sayre and Waverly. 


The Tioga Point was founded in January 1895 as the Tioga Point Historical Society. The purpose of the museum as stated in the original incorporation was: "To collect and procure relics and records of local and general interest to the former and present inhabitants of Athens and vicinity; to collect and procure genealogical records of the first settlers and their descendants; and to provide proper care for, the preservation of the relics and records so collected by the maintenance of a museum where they are placed."  Over 120 years later, the Tioga Point Museum continues to live out that purpose.
